(Hebrew Yzshbach, יַשְבָּח , praiser; Sept. Ι᾿εσαβά ), a descendant of Judah, and founder ("father") of Eshtemoa (q.v.); he probably was a son of Mered by his wife Hodiah (1 Chronicles 4:17). B.C. post 1612. SEE MEFRED. He is perhaps the same as ISHI (See ISHI) (q.v.) in 1 Chronicles 4:20, and apparently identical with the NAHAM (See NAHAM) (q.v.) of 1 Chronicles 4:19.
